Nearly $10 billion of undisclosed resources have been announced during the one-time taxation semblance freedom window in India, a country’s financial apportion pronounced Saturday. The four-month window, that finished Friday, led to 64,275 declarations.

Indian financial apportion Arun Jaitley pronounced that tens of thousands people announced over $9.5 billion in undisclosed assets. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s supervision sent scarcely 700,000 notices this year propelling those with undisclosed taxes to come forward. If evaders announced their dark resources and paid a chastisement and a surcharge, they would not be followed by authorities, a notice promised. Tax semblance or “black money” is a vital emanate in a country.

Based on a declarations gathered so far, a supervision estimates that it could lift about $4.5 billion from this scheme.

“Some disclosures have not been tabulated… This figure [$9.5 billion] could be revised ceiling once a final tabulation is done,” Jaitley reportedly pronounced of a declarations.

Jaitley combined that a supervision is questioning names featured in a Panama papers trickle and a HSBC list of taxation evaders.

“In Panama cases, 250 references have been given to other countries and review is surpassing in good pace. People who figured in a HSBC list, about Rs 8,000 crore (nearly $1 billion) comment have been completed. 164 prosecutions have been filed,” Jaitley said, “The names that ICIJ [International Consortium of Investigative Journalists] had released, in that about Rs 5,000 crore (nearly $750 million) showing has happened and 55 cases charge have been filed.”

However, a figure reported Saturday is a small fragment of India’s undisclosed earnings, a BBC reported. It also does not comment for a income stashed divided in Swiss banks and taxation havens, that experts guess would be around $500 billion.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a array of tweets, called a freedom “successful,” contributing to a “transparency and expansion of a economy.”
